After an eventful, in every possible meaning of that word, weekend at Montmelo, Adam Wheelerand David Emmett sit around Neil Morrison’s dinner table in his apartment in Barcelona to look back at a race which was full of surprises.
There was plenty to talk about. We discuss Fabio Quartararo’s win, and how he seems to be unbeatable at the moment, even when his rivals aren’t taken out.
We discuss Aleix Espargaro’s mistake, thinking the race was over a lap earlier than it actually was, and Neil gives us a history lesson on the many times it has happened before. And we ask the question, how do riders even know when the race is over?
We also talk about the first corner crash, in which Takaaki Nakagami lost the front and took down Pecco Bagnaia and Alex Rins. We debate the standard of stewarding, and whether there should be more accountability.
We have an excellent Renthal Street Session interview with American Racing Moto2 rider Cameron Beaubier. And we finish off with our winners and losers.
